Status and distribution in Luxembourg
Nine observations of the ring-necked parakeet in Luxembourg are documented so far. The first brood of the species in Luxembourg was documented in 2019 in the Clair-Chêne forest in Esch/Alzette.
The rose-ringed parakeet’s preferred habitats are parks, gardens and forests, especially those situated in suburban areas. However, as long as food supplies are adequate, enough cavities are available and temperatures do not drop too low, the species, also known as ring-necked parakeet, is not restricted to the (sub)urban environment. This bird species has the potential to outcompete native cavity-nesting species for nest sites – effects on rare cavity-nesting birds are however not yet documented. In addition, the species could become a serious agricultural pest (fruit trees, vineyards, etc.) and may carry diseases that could be harmful to poultry, other native fauna and humans (Source: http://ias.biodiversity.be/species/show/23).
